HUAWEI MatePad Pro 5G Review: Can Huawei MatePad Pro 5G Replace Windows Laptop?

By  Steve Lowry 2020-05-28 7923 1

As the leader of the Chinese tablet market, Huawei MatePad Pro's performance in the traditional tablet functions is close to perfection. On this basis, the blessing of the Kirin 990 5G SoC flagship chip brings not only super performance but also 5G function. With the addition of 5G features, coupled with Huawei's increasingly mature cloud technology, users will finally be able to achieve a complete PC office and gaming experience on tablet products this time. So can Huawei MatePad Pro 5G be fully used as a PC laptop? In this Huawei MatePad Pro 5G review post, you’ll find out the answer!

The mobile office experience is almost the same as a laptop

There are two ways to implement a mobile office with Huawei MatePad Pro 5G. The first way is to enter the standard laptop mode on Android by simply clicking "computer Mode" in the drop-down menu.

This mode supports multi-window task operation, coupled with a keyboard and mouse, you can start a quasi-desktop experience. Let's click "Open" to enter.


After waiting for about a second, the entire system interface will immediately be transformed into a desktop layout similar to Windows10. Isn't it familiar to see the sorting of icons on the desktop and the bottom taskbar? Note that in the lower right corner, the traditional Android navigation three keys are also preserved.


But after all, this model is based on Android, and is it possible to turn a tablet into a laptop running Windows 10 while on a business trip or in other mobile scenarios? The answer given by Huawei MatePad Pro 5G is yes-through the perfect combination of high speed and low latency of "Huawei Cloud computer" App and 5G technology, we can finally achieve this "wishful thinking" function.


Huawei Cloud computer has two models to choose from, and we are free to choose according to our usual needs. As the name implies, the "configuration" of the "game type" is higher than the "standard type", but if our demand is mainly mobile office, then the "standard type" is enough.


Yes, you read it correctly. After the previous login operation, our Huawei MatePad Pro 5G has now become a Windows10 operating system laptop. After the actual experience test, as long as the 5G network is smooth, everything we can do on the PC can now be done through Huawei MatePad Pro 5G.


The exact same start menu.


Browse the PC web page.


Open WPS to do complicated typesetting work.


Use any software that has been installed.


What if daily office software (such as Office, PhotoShop, XMind) and professional software systems are not installed? Just download it and use it. In short, you can use Huawei MatePad Pro 5G as you use your laptop, and this experience can be described as "exactly the same".


The 5G game experience is absolutely amazing

In addition to the perfect mobile office experience, Huawei MatePad Pro 5G gaming experience is even more eye-popping, because, in addition to ensuring the smooth operation of Android games, we can also use it to play large PC games that can only be run on PCs anytime, anywhere. Still don't believe it? Take a look at the picture below. What game is running on MatePad Pro 5G?


Huawei MatePad Pro 5G Download Test

If we come to a place where the signal is better, the speed of the test can even reach more than 1000m. At this speed, it is extremely smooth to play big games, watch Blu-ray videos or watch live streaming.


The measured conclusion is that the online and download functions of Huawei MatePad Pro 5G are almost invincible as long as they are in a good 5G signal coverage area.


Huawei MatePad Pro 5G Outlook Design

The 4.9mm isometric micro-frame full screen is a bright spot in Huawei  MatePad Pro 5G design, and the 90% screen share is also the highest among the tablet products on the market. The Huawei MatePad Pro 5G is equipped with a 10.8-inch screen with an aspect ratio of 16 to 10 and a resolution of 2560x1600280 PPI, to support 96% NTSC wide color gamut, brightness 540nit, and 1500 96% NTSC high contrast.


Huawei MatePad Pro 5G uses a fully integrated design, which makes the grip more round and comfortable. The whole machine is thin to 7.2mm and weighs about 492g. It is slim and lighter and more suitable for flat plate positioning.


It is worth mentioning that Huawei MatePad Pro 5G rear shell uses a dark green rear shell, very textured.


Huawei MatePad Pro 5G uses USB Type-C interface, comes standard with 40W super-fast charging, and supports 27W wireless forward super-fast charging. It is also the first tablet product in the world to support wireless forward and reverse charging.


Huawei's MatePad Pro 5G has a front 8 million and a rear 13 million-pixel camera. Although taking pictures with a tablet is not a mainstream operation, it is more than enough to cope with needs such as video calls and emergency shooting.


Huawei MatePad Pro 5G accessories

In order to improve productivity, Huawei MatePad Pro 5G is also equipped with an intelligent magnetic keyboard and HUAWEI M-Pencil stylus, which is convenient and fast.


The intelligent magnetic keyboard adopts a full-size keyboard design, which is fully capable of meeting the needs of the "light office" scene.


The HUAWEI M-Pencil has a 4096 pressure sensation and the delay is as low as 20ms.


Huawei MatePad Pro 5G Landscape Mode

For Android, the biggest advantage of tablets over smartphones is screen size, but in fact, many tablets don't have the advantage of a horizontal screen, which seems to be watching videos and playing games. But in fact, Huawei started the horizontal screen ecological layout of the tablet a long time ago, and there are three horizontal screen functions available on the Huawei MatePad Pro 5G.


Smart split-screen: 

As the name implies, it can achieve multi-window and multi-task display; the left and right screens can display different applications without switching, and the floating window function can process pop-up messages more efficiently and quickly without exiting the current process.


Parallel horizon: 

We know that there are many Apps that do not support flat panel horizontal screen control, but the simple vertical screen magnification experience is not so good. The greatest convenience of the parallel horizon is to separate the different interfaces of the App in the horizontal screen state. For example, we can not only watch the contents of Wechat's official account on the right side of the screen but also continue to perform other operations such as watching moments on the left side of the screen, which is very user-friendly.


Multi-screen collaboration: 

In short, Huawei realizes the interconnection between all smart devices. At present, the most commonly used scenario is the interconnection between the phone and the tablet. After the connection is successful, it can achieve data transmission, mutual peripherals, and other operations. At present, multi-screen collaboration has also updated the "shared clipboard" function, which can be copied on the phone and pasted on the tablet to facilitate the collation of information.


Huawei MatePad Pro 5G EMUI 10.1

EMUI operating system came to the 10th generation, all aspects of optimization have been very perfect, if you talk about it in detail, it will be a lot of special evaluation. In this article, we have only experienced three main functions: calling, distributed image library, and video.


The call function supports 1080p HD video call transfer on Huawei mobile phones, tablets, smart screens, and many other devices, while the distributed library uses the distributed technology of EMUI 10.1 system to quickly access, search and share pictures across devices under the same WiFi router and the same Huawei account. The video connection function can "touch" the video being played on the phone directly to Huawei MatePad Pro 5G, open the corresponding APP on the tablet, and resume the video seamlessly. Overall, the strong performance with EMUI 10.1, the latest operating system, makes Huawei MatePad Pro 5G very good for daily use.


The Verdict

If it's not too obtrusive to make phone calls with a big tablet, it can really be said that Huawei MatePad Pro 5G integrates all the functions of a mobile phone, tablet, and laptop. Come to think of it, with this tablet, you can not only experience all the features of the traditional tablet but also achieve the same heavy office and heavy gaming experience as the PC. Of course, you might say that other tablets can also install the "Huawei Cloud" App, but the Kirin 990 5G SoC chip not only brings 5G but also a strong guarantee to support a smooth experience.


Coupled with the same excellent design, screen, battery life, and charging, Huawei MatePad Pro 5G is definitely the best one-step tablet to buy right now.
